Becoming the Help We Needed

As founders of Sexess, our personal experiences have shaped our mission. We have endured abuse including childhood sexual abuse, prolonged domestic violence, and sexual harassment. These experiences have fueled our determination to provide the support we needed. Sadly, we have witnessed how few individuals receive the assistance they need to escape danger. This strengthens our resolve to make a difference. At Sexess, we are committed to ensuring that victims have access to the help and support they deserve.

Issues & Connections

Within our community, there are interconnected issues that contribute to various problems, including domestic violence, sex-related crimes, animal-related abuses, homelessness, addiction, trafficking, suicides, pregnancy, and flaws in laws and punishments. These issues are complicated by systemic and personal prejudices such as race, class, and gender. It is crucial to establish a strong network to address these challenges and provide survivors with the support they need to rebuild their lives.

Topics, areas of study, and social media inquiries that may be explored by our nonprofit organization, Sexess, include:

1. Rape and sexual abuse: This issue affects individuals of all genders, spanning from adults to children. By delving into this topic, we can shed light on the experiences of victims and work towards prevention and support.

2. Domestic violence: Similar to sexual abuse, domestic violence impacts individuals of all genders and age groups. Researching this topic will help us understand the dynamics of abusive relationships and develop strategies to address and mitigate this issue.

3. Toxic masculinity and femininity: Exploring the harmful effects of societal expectations surrounding gender roles can help dismantle stereotypes and foster healthier relationships. By challenging traditional notions, we can promote more inclusive and equitable dynamics.

4. Biases and double standards: Understanding how biases and double standards perpetuate abusive behaviors and victim-blaming is crucial. By investigating this topic, we can raise awareness and advocate for a more just and supportive society.

5. Bigotry: Examining forms of bigotry such as sexism, ageism, and homophobia enables us to address the root causes of discrimination and promote acceptance and respect for all individuals.

6. Health and safety: This broad topic encompasses crucial areas such as disease prevention, reproductive health, and mental well-being. By focusing on these issues, we can provide resources and support to those facing challenges related to these aspects of their lives.

7. Entitlement: Investigating the issue of entitlement and its role in sexual misconduct and violence can help us challenge harmful attitudes and behaviors. By promoting consent and respect, we can contribute to a safer and more egalitarian society.

8. Breaking gender stereotypes: Addressing the harmful effects of gender stereotypes, such as the harmful "pink vs. blue" mentality, is essential in fostering healthy relationships and dismantling gender-based discrimination.

9. Power and control: By highlighting the misuse of sexuality as a tool for manipulation and control in various contexts, such as relationships, politics, and religion, we emphasize the importance of consent and autonomy.

10. Reproduction fetish and adoption: Examining society's obsession with birthing children and the stigma surrounding adoption can help challenge harmful notions and promote a more inclusive understanding of family-building.

11. LGBTQ+ rights and challenges: Exploring the experiences and struggles faced by LGBTQ+ individuals can help us raise awareness about their unique needs and work towards a more accepting and inclusive society.

12. Stereotypes: Investigating the impact of stereotypes on diverse communities, including BDSM/lifestyles/fetishes, race, gender, and sexuality, can foster understanding and combat discrimination.

13. Differentiating types of affection: By examining the distinctions between love, affection, infatuation, romance, intimacy, sexuality, and sensuality, we can promote healthier relationships built on clear communication and respect.

14. Definitions and perceptions: Addressing the varying definitions and perceptions of terms such as alphas, betas, simps, alpha submissives, abuse, rape, and domestic violence can contribute to a better understanding of these concepts and their implications in our society.

Sexology

Throughout history, the study of human sexuality has been important. Today, contemporary studies aim to debunk misconceptions and societal taboos that contribute to harmful stereotypes and victim-blaming.

It's concerning that some legislators still impose taxes based on false beliefs, such as the notion that tampons cause orgasms, highlighting the need for adult sex education.

There are numerous professional organizations and research institutions dedicated to comprehending and promoting education on human sexuality. Some of these include the American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors, & Therapists (AASECT), the European Society of Sexual Medicine (ESSM), and the Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender and Reproduction.
